S. Africa finds Omicron evades immunity from prior infection

South Africa's National Institute For Communicable Diseases said on Thursday that it found evidence that the Omicron coronavirus variant evades immunity from prior infections.

At the same time, the health agency stated that its latest study found that the risk of getting reinfected with the Omicron variant is three times higher than with previous variants of the virus.

On the other hand, South African scientists reported that while daily infections are "skyrocketing" in Omicron hotspots, those affected only had "mild" cases and there were no severe ones.
